Urban design professionals are in demand.
We can help you develop design skills that will relate to a broader social, environmental and economic context, linking individual architectural projects and overall planning strategies.
From the outset, you’ll work with communities on real design projects. In the studio, you’ll be encouraged to experiment and develop your own ideas with expert support from your tutors.
You’ll learn how to manage urban design projects, how to write a brief and how to evaluate it. The experience will also sharpen your communication skills as you learn how to present your ideas, visually and verbally, for different audiences.
The course produces ambitious, creative graduates who understand urban design in its social, political and economic contexts. They’re self-motivated, highly effective project leaders with a comprehensive knowledge of their specialism.
